Fury MAX (Fury #1-6)

Fury MAX - Garth Ennis, Darick Robertson A story of what happens when old warriors don't quite know when to quit and retire. Then again, when it comes to Nick Fury, it seems espionage and war just follow him. In this case, an old foe of Fury draws him into one more conflict in a time when the UN and S.H.I.E.L.D. are run by bureaucrats more interested in "efficiencies" and long distance weapons than doing the actual job (hmm, gee, sounds a lot like today). It's written by Garth Ennis, so it has the usual violence, gore, and dark humor that he is known for. Overall, it was a pretty entertaining read, and a cynical look at how small bad governments are propped up by outside interests. If you know anything about the Cold War era, you probably will appreciate this a little more. I was not so sure about the ending though, but I won't spoil it. Nick Fury fans will probably enjoy this.
